A great number of my coworkers will be taking the day off to watch the inauguration. I do not share their enthusiasm for Obama. Many of them voted for him out of ethnic pride
and I understand symbolism.
It will be a tough day at work as the remaining folk will have to work very hard. I plan on bringing my A game with me.
Obama was elected on the heels of a financial mess largely by a compliant media that let him get away with saying hope and change endlessly.
